Set in the middle of Wilmington's Trolley Square Shopping Center, Pure Yoga Pilates Studio is a peaceful fitness oasis. With large windows that let in sunlight that spills over the bamboo flooring, this welcoming studio offers classes in Vinyasa- and Hatha-style yoga, along with classic mat Pilates sessions. Certified instructors lead the small group classes, helping students to gain strength and flexibility in a supportive, noncompetitive environment.
Yoga U’s team of experienced instructors offers frequently scheduled 75-minute Vinyasa and Flow-yoga classes that form a tranquil oasis designed to quell the healthful thirsts of bodies and minds; no prior yoga experience is required for any of Yoga U's classes. Heated Vinyasa classes are tailored to active lifestyles and challenge apathetic muscles and joints to melt their stiff, misanthropic ice sheaths during strengthening and stretching poses. Flow-yoga classes offer a gentler alternative, taking practitioners through postures with an emphasis on alignment and slower-paced movements reminiscent of snail-propelled glaciers. Class sizes are kept at 10–30 people, allowing for individual attention and manageable group hugs.
Our Vision and path is to bring light and energy to the community through healthy practices including physically sound yoga and meditation classes taught with consistency and integrity with certified and experienced instructors in the Yoga Power & Light Studio.
Fitness Yoga Studios stretches out its arms to encourage everyone, at every experience level, to improve their strength and flexibility with yoga. Though it specializes in Vinyasa flow, a breath-focused style of yoga, Fitness Yoga Studios offers a wide variety of classes, while a convenient schedule aids in achieving and maintaining physical, spiritual, and emotional health for budding yogis. Unwind with the gentle yoga class, perfect for newbies or a jury that’s snuck out of its deliberation, or challenge the body's limits with the hot Vinyasa flow session, where guests flex in a room heated to about 90 degrees. Students can obtain newfound energy in the yoga renew class, which emphasizes proper alignment, or increase their range of motion in the yin/Vinyasa sessions. Novice contortionists can also try out the soothing, fluid motions of the classic Vinyasa experience and enjoy profound meditation once their Third Eyes have been safely pried open.
For more than a decade, the dedicated staff members at Summit Fitness Club have strived to set their gym apart from other athletic facilities with their personal approach to fitness. The owners are regularly on site to oversee operations and offer words of encouragement, and general manager Grace Fiorilla—a longtime gym member and an instructor for the past four years—calls upon her personal experiences at the gym to keep guests engaged.
The team cares for youngsters in the childcare area and leads classes ranging from martial arts–inspired BodyCombat sessions to flowing Pilates classes. The renovated space is populated with large-screen plasma TVs and row after row of free weights and cardio equipment, including cross-trainers, elliptical machines, and spinning cycles with computer feedback. In the lounge area—which is decorated with vibrant orange walls and multicolored, 3-D artwork—guests can sip complimentary coffee to help them ease into the day from workouts inadvertently performed while sleepwalking.
